The Great Migration was the movement of 6 million African-Americans out of the rural Southern United States to the urban Northeast, Midwest and west. How did it have an effect on there families? And how did it change their lives for the better? African Americans faced many trials from the great migration they were forced to move from their homes, they moved from the south to other parts of the country, in 1900s the had set off looking for jobs some we 're looking to get away from the racism many were looking for schools to accept them, but Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New York and Philadelphia had all experienced a spike in population. For example Detroit had a original population of maybe 6,000 in 1910, but by 1930 this number hit 120,000.
I think that Dagoberto Gilb really made a great point to connect to what Urrea was trying to say about the history of the boarder in his book. Gilb talks about how the people of Arizona and even all over the country like to pretend that Latinos are almost invisible. They are given no credit for actually giving Arizona and other places the culture it has which many white people seem to love. Urrea gives the history that he does to inform you that Latinos have been in what we call America much longer than any white people have. Yet they are treated like they are lesser people because they have a different skin
Some people are more individualistic today because they have been oppressed for too long and they have started to realize that no one can take away their rights. If society was to be how it was in the 1950s then America would still be free and vibrant but not all Americans would be free and vibrant. If America today was the way it was back then, than people of color wouldn’t even get to be a part of a prestigious society with such great morals therefore, there wouldn’t be many societies to “demoralize.” In fact, the morals of society back in the day were worse than they are today. Society today is more independent, accepting, diverse, and understanding than ever before and that’s more important than the usage frequency of
For example: Americans acknowledge that world hunger is a problem but the majority only acknowledge that it is a problem and do not try to fix it. For this reason, America’s biggest challenge is being able to unify its people to have the strength to deal with problems. This challenge is really hard to take on because of how diverse America is. Diversity is good, but not when it comes to trying to agree upon something with people who have completely opposing views. Racism is a good example of this.
That is how business stuff happens specially marketing; they make things seem very good and wanted so everyone would like to buy and not to just buy one but more than one until people lose their money. What happened in China happened before in Japan and America maybe in the same way, but they said that it was way more in China. It seems wired isn’t it Asians always seem smart enough not to fall in this thing, but I have to say seeing those house makes me want to buy it so much but not living in it is a very wired thing, I mean I have a house it’s very great it’s good enough for me and my way of living why leaving it why not living in it. Bubble Economy was a well known thing that makes a disaster for countries and leads poor people to think of nothing but
Most times, if we have tolerance respect and the idea of equality for other individuals, conversations can get along nicely without any defense. But with society today the diversities in America may not be able to tolerate to find any respect for those who look or are from different countries. In my defense for the past 50 years Human Rights have still not changed. The incidents that involve racial profiling are in a more minor scale than it used to, but can be still offensive when being insensitive or being misinformed of their culture. Even long ago blacks were segregated from the
But the Chinese people are modest, they often derogatory themselves and somone or something that associated with. We often deny the fact of praise, in order to show our modesty and respect for others. Because the polite of the original book are different from the English reader habits, so the cultural connotation of the language in the translation is very easy to cause misunderstanding. Mr Yang’s translation do not abandon the cultural factors in the Chinese culture because of the difference between Chinese and Western cultures, on the contrary, they convey the Chinese culture while conveying the original author 's intention, so that more Western readers understand China. For those typical cultural phenomena, readers will gradually adapt and understand after repeated contact experiences, which is one of the purposes of translation: let the world understand China in the trend of world cultural
In spite of the fact that the Declaration of Independence promises that “all men are created equal”, many Americans disagree on whether that promise is being kept or if it has been simply forgotten. Believing in that promise, many people see America as a melting pot, where everyone will be welcomed and able to acculturate to the United States; however, that is not always the reality due to many peoples’ lack of acceptance and abundant ways to prejudice minorities. In his article “Causes of Prejudice”, Vincent N. Parrillo, a professor of sociology at William Paterson University in New Jersey, author of multiple books, and writer and producer of two award-winning documentaries for PBS television, took upon reviewing some of the many theories
William Grimes from the New York said that he didn’t believe that racism had disappeared, but the civil rights movement has made it contemptible in the eyes of most Americans. (GRIMES CITE) Racism hasn’t gone nor in my opinion gotten much better. People just don’t openly talk about it as much as they did prior to the civil rights movement as it became socially
This changed my mind because I thought that in china things were not as bad, I knew there was censorship but not to that extent. This change my perspective about eh whole world because then it got me to think where else is this problem occurring. So now I see things from a different perspective and know that even thogh we are equal we are separated and subjugated by the different countries we live in. 4. What role does art play in local and global societies?
